Background and academic interests
I am a researcher at CEES where I collaborate with Prof. Nils Chr. Stenseth and the team. My research interests cover health geographics, mathematical epidemiology and public health. Throughout my early career, I have engaged extensively with methodological innovation for the spread of multiple diseases, leveraging multidisciplinary approaches to investigate diffusions of avian influenza, dengue, malaria and coronavirus, across various spatio-temporal scales.
My PhD was completed at Beijing Normal University, pursuing interdisciplinary work studying biogeography and the environmental determinants of infectious disease transmission. I trained in mathematical epidemiology at Columbia University and CEES, and worked as a research associate in Imperial College London.
